Volution Group plc

 

Awards under the Company's Long Term Incentive Plan

and Deferred Share Bonus Plan

 

 

Volution Group plc ("Volution" or the "Company", LSE: FAN), a leading supplier of ventilation products to the residential and commercial construction markets, today announces that on 17 October 2016 the Executive Directors were granted awards under the Company's 2014 Long Term Incentive Plan ("LTIP awards") and 2014 Deferred Share Bonus Plan ("DSBP awards") as follows:

 

Executive Director

LTIP awards

 

DSBP awards

Ronnie George, Chief Executive Officer

 

228,735

4,106

Ian Dew, Chief Financial Officer

 

155,955

2,933

 

The LTIP awards were made in the form of nil-cost options, which will, subject to the rules of the LTIP, vest following the Remuneration Committee's determination of the extent to which performance conditions applicable to the awards have been satisfied. To the extent the performance conditions have been satisfied, the nil-cost options will have a normal vesting date of 18 October 2021 (which includes a two year holding period) and the options will lapse on 17 October 2026. 

 

The LTIP awards will vest subject to the achievement of performance against relative Total Shareholder Return (against two comparator groups) and Earnings per Share growth targets, measured over a three year performance period. The amounts shown above represent the maximum number of nil-cost options which could vest.   

 

The price used to calculate the number of LTIP awards was £1.70 per ordinary share, being the average of the mid-market closing price of a Volution ordinary share on the three consecutive business days immediately preceding the date of grant. No consideration was paid for the LTIP awards.

 

As set out in the Remuneration Policy in the Annual Report and Accounts 2015, under the Company's Annual Bonus Plan, 50% of any bonus payment above the target incentive (which is 60% of the maximum opportunity) earned by the Executive Directors will normally be deferred into awards over the Company's shares.

 

The DSBP awards were made in the form of a conditional award, which will, subject to the rules of the DSBP, have a normal vesting date of 17 October 2019. No consideration was paid for the DSBP awards and no consideration is due to be payable on vesting.

 

Following the LTIP awards and DSBP awards, the interests of the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer are as follows:
